While this walk in the woods doesn't compete with the 4000-footers in nearby White Mountains. It nevertheless was a good workout with a few steep spots. There are a few caches along the way, as well!

Love this hike- but this online map is wrong. The part labeled “bald knob viewpoint” is actually the top.... and the part labeled “Bald knob” is actually a different mountain called Turtleback.

It's short but steep. Beautiful view up top :)

good moderate hike with some difficult to see trail markings. gets kinda steep more than half way in. views from the top awesome. good pics along the rocks at the summit.

Views at the top are worth the mostly straight up the hill trail. Cascading creek makes for a nice backdrop along side the trail. Awesome views of the lakes region. The top has a small picnic bench but the best seats are in the rocks. Wild berries in summer and fall.

A short but rigorous hike; pretty steep most of the way up. The trail isn’t well marked but the views are gorgeous. Once you hit the viewpoint with the Bald Knob sign you can turn around (there’s nothing past there closer to the actual summit) and it only takes about a mile to get to that point. I will probably hike this again but will do so via the Bald Knob cutoff trail that’s at the actual trail parking lot.

Beautiful views at the top. Trail near the top not marked well and required a scramble up steep granite. Steep hike overall and rocky and challenging for newbies like myself, but doable.
